not accept what happened from some of the citizens of the united states who offended the prophet mohammed-- peace be upon him. there was also somebody who wanted to burn the koran and this is something we do not accept at all. so the demonstrations were an expression of a high level of anger and a rejection of what is happening and the u.s. embassy represents the symbol of america as a people and government so people, the demonstrators, had a loud voice and as a government, it's our responsibility as the government of egypt we protected the embassy. we do not condone any attack against any embassies or any guests. this is a part of our principles and culture and what our religion orders us to do. >> rose: so the united states government and egyptian government are friends, not enemies? >> ( translated ): we are not enemies, of course. >> rose: you're our friends? >> ( translated ): for sure we are friends. >> rose: allies? >> the u.s. president said otherwise. >> rose: i know he did. but i'm asking the egyptian president. do you consider the united states an ally? >> ( translated ): this
president of the united states bill clinton in conversation with me and my colleague at cbs nora o'donnell. >> rose: do you think this election the president has said that change has to come from outside rather than in washington, that this election has the possibility of producing a change that will be able to overcome gridlock. >> i don't think it to the only has the possibility, i think it almost certainly will. and let me explain why. i think the president's going to win but let's assume governor romney won. if he wins, that almost certainly means the republicans will hold on to the house and it will be about 50/50 in the senate, more or less the way it is now. you can't filibuster a budget. it's the only thing that doesn't require 60 votes in the senate to pass o as opposed to 51. so a lot of the policymaking will be pushed into the budget and he'll just have to pick up one or two people on that. if you assume that he is going to do what he said he's going to do, i think a lot of his priorities will be enacted. and i think it will be bad on the budget side, as i said. includin
of saudi intelligence, ambassador to the united states and other countries >> and throughout these 80 some years that we have had our kingdom, everybody keeps talking about an uncertain future for the kingdom and because of the sagacity of the people of saudi arabia and the good will of the leadership and the government we have survived pretty well so far we have many problems to face, including syria. many challenges internally among the young people and how the go about the courses of development not just economically but socially and politically and the role of women, etc. all of these are tremendous challenges that are being debated within the kingdom and not coming from the outside. >> rose: tom friedman and prince turki al-faisal when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: tom friedman is here, he is a pulitzer prize winning columnist in for the "new york times." for more than 30 years he's been writing ant foreign affairs, american politics and so much more. in addition to serving as bureau chief in
to the united states. >> i think the components, the resolution of the iranian crisis there has to be negotiation, there has to be sanctions, there has to be a credible threat of war and there has to be a ladder to enable the regime to climb down. if you have all four elements in play then you can have a peaceful resolution to all of these. but if you look at it, i'm not happy, i should say this very clearly. i'm not happy with the way our foreign policy and doe midwest i can politics have become intertwined. i'm not happy at the rift between the prime minister and the administration. when he said we need to see red lines, secretary clinton said there are not going to be red lines. >> rose: we conclude with best selling author michael lewis talking about a new article he has in "vanity fair" about president obama. >> i thought what would be a fun piece of journalism to do? and i just had been struck through the course not just of this man's administration, this president's administration but previous ones just kind of a dysjuncture between the commentary on the outside and what
between russia and the united states. iran is another is the dis trust over nato's defense shield. earlier this month the u.s. agency of the international development to lead russia. i'm pleased to have sergey lavrov back at this table, welcome. >> thank you very much, nice to be back. >> rose: u.s.-russia relations. >> yes, i believe we agree that these relations should be promoted. when president obama came to the whitehouse, he and his team assessed the relationship between moscow and washington and suggested what they call the reset of those relations which we supported. and i believe that since then, we have been having understanding between us, between moscow and russia, that the really mutually beneficial partnership in the interest of the russian and american people in the interest of international relations given the importance of the two countries can be based on equal, mutually respectful, mutually beneficial relationship. and on that route, we achieved quite a lot. i would be incomplete if i don't mention that there are problems, of course. you mentioned one of them, missile d
, there are conflicting views of beijing's role as banker to the united states government. some see it as a source of leverage, but others see chinese holdings of u.s. debt as an investment with little return. >> it's not invested in their own country. it hasn't been given to their own people. it's a gigantic waste of money. and really, it does not give china leverage over the u.s., because if they used it, they'd only be shooting themselves in the foot. so, in that respect, i think it's as much a symbol of a weak imbalances in the chinese economy as it is of chinese power. >> reporter: and even if the chinese government wanted to sell off u.s. treasuries, it's not clear it could find a buyer. >> the bigger problem is if they announced that they were simply not going to participate in the next treasury auction or the next three or four treasury auctions. that would produce something of a scramble to see who would participate. the result would probably be some increase in interest rates here. >> reporter: but even that seems likely to hurt china as much or more than the united states. china buys u.
against the united states without some consequencesment now that authority has been removed. the imams and other speakers at friday prayers are free to say almost whatever they want. and that makes the situation far more dangerous. >> protests and deaths in the middle east. and political implications in america when we continue. >> funding for charlie rose was provided by the following: . >> rose: additional funding provided by these funders captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. in this presidential election of 2012 foreign policy was not considered to be an important factor. that's all changed now because on monday night when american diplomatic interests came under attack in egypt and libya, tragically ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in benghazi, governor romney has attempted to make some political attacks out of the situation. and here is what he said. >> i think it's a-- a -- -- a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> rose: president obama responded in kind in
. >> warner: the president said the united states would work with the libyan government to track down the perpetrators. >> today, we mourn four more americans who represent the very best of the united states of america. we will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. and make no mistake, justice will be done. >> warner: for now, the pentagon ordered special units of marines to libya called "fast" teams, like this detachment shown training, to reinforce security at diplomatic sites in libya. and from tripoli, the president of libya's national assembly echoed the words of his american counterparts. >> ( translated ): we apologize to the united states of america and to the american people and to the whole world for what happened, and at the same time we expect the rest of the world to help us face these cowardly criminal acts. we refuse to use our country's land as a scene of cowardly reprisals. >> warner: those reprisals came apparently in response to internet clips of a film titled "the innocence of muslims" that crudely defamed the prophet muhamm
on for the past year and the worsening of relations between united states and pakistan. >> ok, when you're at the state department, you revise the u.s. government on relations between pakistan and afghanistan. mousavi video president obama put out, this thing -- you saw the video president obama put up, distancing america from the film. does that help? >> it does help. it is the first time united states is taking this kind of innovative pro-active measure. in some ways, you are trying to use this when already a tidal wave has started. it is hard to stop a tidal wave. >> is there anything washington can do? >> keep engaging on an ongoing basis. not this one a crisis happens. also, when we have disagreements with pakastani, we should explain ourselves to them. we should have kept them engaged. where we see the consequences of the collapse of the relationship as we saw today, then we try to come up with these measures, and often they are good, but they are too little to late. >> is that the problem? we have a short-term policy? >> we decided we should punish them, put pressure on pakistan.
, whether this man deserves to stay as president of the united states. he says he shares the pain and frustration of those who have lost their jobs but have never been more hopeful about america because of its people. this election would be the clearest choice in a generation. >> it will be a choice between two pads for america, between different visions for the future. >> this was not the rhetoric of four years ago. instead it workmanlike presence on the hard path to a better place. he derided his opponent as the same old failed policies of the past. >> have a surplus? try a tax cut. the deficit is too high? try another. stilicho coming on? take to bank tax cuts and rollbacks and regulations and call us in the morning. >> he mocked mitt romney's lack of foreign experience. >> you might not be ready if you cannot visit the olympics without insulting our closest allies. >> scarcely time to catch a breath and both hit the campaign trail. this is what greeted the president. >> we are not better off under president obama. fewer jobs, higher taxes on middle-class. fuel prices have doub
. this is a manifestation of that ongoing conflict. the united states has been attacking these elements steadily in recent years through the use of drums and the elements are trying to find ways to strike back. a big maybe the timing is interesting because in the aftermath of the raid, pakistan- u.s. relations hit rock bottom. they're starting to improve, so maybe it is trying to rekindle those tensions. >> his id emboldening militants and pakistan? >> there is a dynamic between afghanistan and pakistan. the united states as tried to get some of these elements to negotiate a peace settlement and they have been unwilling to do that. notwithstanding the united states strategy to appeal some of the elements of the violence strategy in the political process, this war continues. >> can you tell us about the location of today's attack? >> is a major pakistan the city. and what makes it a significant is the proximity to the largely under-governed tribal areas. that is where they are based, where the taliban escape to in the aftermath of u.s. and international intervention. it is the remaining safe haven where th
in doing so, and these will not break the bonds between the united states and libya. >> the new prime minister has just been named after the recent elections, but the killing shows that in and when a new libya, armed groups continue to act seemingly with impunity. in cairo, demonstrators are blaming the u.s. for the film. it is a challenge for the muslim-lead government which has condemned the film while calling for protests. in libya the government will want this type of demonstration, pro america but against the film. the danger that in might be viewed across the region as legitimate anchor. -- anger. >> i am joined by the u.s. state official who served as the president of the council on foreign relations. we do not know the motives behind the attack, but what we do know is this is a very unstable country. we have a government that is moderate or pro-american, but that is not true of everyone. >> it underscores the reality it is one thing to out of authoritarian regimes, and it is something -- to ask authoritarian regimes, and it is something different to meet international obligati
of the united states. he will be speak later this will evening introduced by his wife dr. jill biden. then his mentor and friend senator dick durbin will introduce the president of united states for the acceptance speech. this crowd has been on its feet much of evening and the hall is very crowded. the crowd got up as one and roared its ak race for former -- acclamation for former congresswomanwoman gabrielle ge towards of arizona felled by a devastating gun shot to the head. slowly, painstakingly and with her friend debbie wasserman schultz of florida she came to the stage to lead the pledge of allegiance. [cheers and applause] >> i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america and to the republic for which it stands one nation under god indif indivisible with liberty and justice for all. [cheers and applause] [cheers and applause] >> ifill: that was some moment. >> woodruff: it was. i don't think there were many dry eyes. >> ifill: joining us in the sky box is madeleine albright former secretary of state. welcome. >> very good to be with you. >> ifill: we're having a remarka
, for responding to this video with violence. >> woodruff: clinton also sought again to distance the united states' government from the film and its maker. the associated press reported that he's been identified as a coptic christian living in california with a checkered legal past. actors in the film said that they were duped, that the blasphemous and offensive dialogue was later dubbed in. and not just muslims, but coptic christians in cairo denounced the film and its apparent intent. >> ( translated ): if it is proven that there is a copt that participated in the making of this movie, the church 100% refuses him. >> woodruff: there were efforts to remove the video from view. the government of afghanistan tried to block youtube access. and in egypt and libya, youtube restricted users from playing the clip. meanwhile, american naval and military assets in the mediterranean, including warships and drone aircraft, refocused on libya, a country they helped liberate last year as part of a u.n.-sanctioned, nato operation. >> woodruff: nancy yousseff of mcclathy newspapers. she has been reporting on th
old gymnast led the pledge of allegiance. >> i pledge allegiance, to the flag of the united states of america, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. ( cheers and applause ) >> thank you! >> ifill: that was followed by saxophonist branford marsalis performing the national anthem. ray suarez is on the floor now among the delegates, where he's been each night this week. >> suarez: you know, gwen, one of the biggest events of this week is something that isn'tingt going to happen, the long-expected and long-planned-for stadium welcome for president obama tomorrow night where he would give his acceptance speech. because of threatening skies, that has been canceled and moved indoors to the arena where the rest of the convention has been held. well, it means some inconvenience for the people who were set to appear there. it means some inconvenience for the people who were staging the event, but the real problem is with the tens of thousands of people who gave tens of thousands of volunteer hours in order to qualify fo
, the attempt to improve relations with china and russia. obviously he's got the uwe united states out of iraq. the united states after going up has now come down to some extent in afghanistan. the middle east, even though it's turbulent, is more open than it was. so i think the president in general can point to some areas where he moved forward and some areas obviously his critics will say where he movedded back. all in all it's a defense i believe and defendable record. >> ifill: i want to walk through some of that piece by piece. referencing the president's speech today, he turned over a big chunk of it to talking about the difference between railing against or speaking out against violence... violent extremism versus protecting free speech. why was so much devoted to that topic? >> gwen, i thought it was an interesting speech. very reflective speech. i think probably designd by the president and his advisors to try to heal some of the wounds that have been so apparent between the muslim world and the united states over these last two weeks, these very tragic weeks. i thought it was interes
economy. that is why he united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> woodruff: but iran's president, mahmoud ahmadinejad, has long insisted that the country's nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes. and during his own speech yesterday, he denounced potential military action by israel. >> testing new generations of ultra-modern weaponry and the pledge to disclose these armaments in due time is now being used as a new language of threat against nations to coerce them into accepting a new era of hegemony. continued threats by the uncivilized zionists to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear example of this bitter reality. >> woodruff: earlier this week, iran unveiled a new long-range reconnaissance drone and the country's revolutionary guard said it tested new missiles as well. prime minister netanyahu noted that while international sanctions by the u.s. and other countries have hurt the iranian economy, they did not stop its nuclear program. >> there's only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs. a
's accomplished. that and more tonight on "n.b.r."! trade tensions between the united states and china are heating up again. this morning, the two countries challenged each other in the world trade organization. the u.s. is accusing china of illegally subsidizing auto and auto parts exports, and hurting u.s. made goods. and china claims trade laws here, open the door for illegal tariffs on a wide range of chinese products. sylvia hall breaks down what's behind the latest flareup. >> reporter: here in the u.s., the auto and auto parts industries employ about 800,000 american workers. the government says those workers are hurt by the money china gives to subsidize its own auto industry. and in ohio, a key swing state fueled by cars, president obama promised a crack down: >> these are subsidies that directly harm working men and women on the assembly lines in ohio and michigan and across the midwest. it is not right, it is against the rules, and we will not let it stand. >> reporter: the administration said that between 2009 and 2011, the chinese government offered up at least $1 billion in subsidies
for president of the united states. >> california delegates started to boost the turnout for the election in an overwhelmingly blue state and across the country. >> the tea party is mobilizing to get out the vote. >> and party leaders outline their strategies. >> nancy pelosi declared us a battle ground state. we need to bring home the congressional races. >> and former secretary of state condoleezza rice on the romney administration and foreign policy. >> i hope the congress and president together will undertake immigration reform. the states cannot have their own immigration policies. >> coming up next. >> belva: good evening. i'm belva davis. welcome to this special edition of "this week in northern california." it's been an exciting week here in tampa reporting from the republican national convention. i spent most of my time hearing from the california delegates about their hopes for a romney/ryan administration. >> i accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> belva: mitt romney's acceptance speech on thursday reinforced his campaign goal. keeping the issue of jobs
population of afghans in the united states. many of them have settled here in fremont. over the past three decades, the area known as little ckabul has become a cultural haven for afghans looking for community and the flavors of home. >> fremont boulevard known as little cab up or centreville, it was an illusion created by journalists. there's actually not as many restaurants or community centers as you would see in chinatown, for example. however, it's still a sense of home through afghans. >> she has ease the the transition for several generations of afghan refugees in the bay area. they have come to the united states in waves starting with the 1979 soviet invasion. >> kabul was a very robust city when the first wave of immigrants came to the united states. they used to mention they had a lot of good times going to restaurants and movie theaters. that's what little kabul provides on a small scale to the bay area community. >> there's bakery store, also mosques built here, so people do praying. >> reporter: they share a tiny art a few blocks from the strip. the balcony doubles as an art s
with the united states. gwen: you just hit on something important which is at the beginning of the week you saw the president having to make a phone call to netanyahu, the israeli prime minister, and at the end of the week having to make a phone call to mursi, another difficult relationship. theoretically, both allies. how difficult was this for the white house to juggle? >> i think it was really difficult for them because here we have a white house that really sort of tip-toed its way through the arab spring and tried to be on the side of the ghontors but not too much and sort of tried to balance that out and i think kind of felt like they had gotten through it and all of a sudden we're back there today. this is also a president, keep in mind, who went to cairo in 2009 and said he wanted a new start with the arab world and the muslim world, you know, forget the, i mean bad things have happened in the past and here we are at the dawn of a new day. here we see now anti-american protests throughout the region. even if they're not directly against the u.s. that's how it feels. gwen: wasn't it exac
antonio texas, hoolian julit trocastroand michelle obama, tht lady of the united states. >> woodruff: mark shields and draifd brooks were with us last weak in tampa and they are here with us in charlotte. what does this line up tonight say to you what the democrats, what barack obama wants to accomplish. >> michelle obama isç obviously the mostç interesting one. just as romney needed to be, still president obama needs to be humanized a little. he's a bit ensue her. motivation behind healthcare and the turmoil to do a lot of things; even though the overall rates is high and has been phenomenally favorable, the favorable or unfavorable rated has shifted quite significantly. an abc pofl has obama's unfavorability among women going up by 11 poifnts while romney's favorability was going up by seven. it shifted in a republican direction even if the overall number is not. >> ifill: which are the faces we're going to see on the stain tonight. >> that's right gwen. michelle obama is most important. the two most popular figures in the democratic party are michelle obama and bill clinton.
barak obama, president of the united states. democrats believe in reigniting the american dream by removing barriers to success and building ladders of opportunity for all. so that everyone can succeed. jobs are central to the american dream. and president obama has focused on jobs from day one. under president obama we've gone from losing 800,000 jobs a month to adding 4.5 million private sector jobs over the last 29 months. the american dream is about freedom. jobs means freedom. for workers to support their families. working with president obama, democrats passed a lilly better pay fair act to strengthen women's rights in the workplace. we repealed don't ask don't tell so our troops can serve the country they love regardless of whom they love. we made college more affordable. house democrats passed the dream act. but senate republicans blocked it. with president obama, democrats enacted the toughest consumer safeguards in history. to protect main street from wrecklessness of some on wall street. democrats passed healthcare reform to allow americans the freedom to pursue their
with the united states. the military relationship continues, and that has gone on for many years. yet now there is an elected civilian president that is trying to assert the degree of independence at a moment when both sides are now trying to understand the priorities of each other, and the united states is adjusting to an egyptian leader that has to respond to some degree to the wants and desires of his own people. it is a much more high maintenance type of relationship because nothing can be taken for granted in the same way that it was when egypt was essentially a client state. >> president morsi called syria the tragedy of the age. any new ideas there about how to stop the fighting? >> not so much. this is indicative of egypt's position at the moment. more aspirational and ambitious with respect to charting a more independent course, but of course egypt is consumed by domestic affairs, particularly on the economic front. so egypt is not in a position to really exert great influence on the syrian civil war. it is not a proxy player in the sense of supporting any of the sides there, yet
weapons program. there is no nuclear weapons program, according to 16 united states intelligence agencies in 2007, reaffirmed in 2011. even the israelis are now saying we think the americans were right. they don't have a nuclear weapons program. the ayatollah has said nuclear weapons on iran's part would be immom, unjust and unislammic. so why are we now considering talking about a war on a country to he dehe prior it of weapons of mass destruction it does not have? >> the big news out of netanyahu's speech is he reaffirmed the fact that israel has no intention of attacking iran before the november election. i think there was concern that there'd be this november surprise. and i think that the intelligence agencies in this country and in israel agree that iran has not made the decision to go nuclear and what netanyahu wants to do is if they get close, he wants a preemptive attack. let's talk about it after the election. i think netanyahu's attempts to insert himself in american politicses have backfired. >> to pick up pat's point, you may be correct. >> there is already a black line. >>
further monetary policy to boost the united states economy. after last friday's disappointing labor report there is a growing call for a robust response from the central bank which is the fed, financial markets have rallied with the expectation of a third round of bond buying known as cuan tative easing. but that option is controversial with the election two months away. joining me from washington david leonhardt, washington bureau chief of the "new york times". in 2011 he won a pulitzer prize for his columns on the u.s. economy. i'm pleased to have him back on this program. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: so what might the fed do and what consequences might happen? >> well, the fed is now talking about doing a version of something it has already done a couple timesment people may have heard the phrase q e3 to refer to what this is n technical terms that is quantitative easing 3. let's skip the technical terms, in essence it would buy up assets. in the course of buying up assets it would try to reduce long-term interest rates. short trem interest rates are already essentially at zero, the
hussein obama solemnly swear. >> i will execute the office to the office of the president united states faithfully. >> that i will execute. >> faithfully the -- the office -- >> the office the united states faithfully. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the united states. >> preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the united states. >> so help you god. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> rose: the problem. >> the problem was the phrase do so legally swear, because obama .. jumped in after barack hussein obama, i do not had said solemnly swear would be in that first stanza, but .. obama didn't know that so they were off kilter from the very beginning and then you saw roberts really just sort of lost his place. >> rose: and had a bit of -- there was some worry that the new president was not officially the new president? >> well, that is the next day story. of course in the -- all the excitement of the inaugural balls, no one thought much about it, the next morning,
is that hundreds of recently rounded up suspected insurgents are in the hands of the united states. there is still a fundamental dispute between u.s. commanders and the afghan government over what sort of process the afghans will use to continue to detain inmates and how they're going to try to adjudicate the release of some of them. afghanistan does not have on its books any sort of laws to indefinitely detained people for security violations. will they seek to put some of them on trial and release others? >> it is symptomatic of the real breakdown in trust between washington and the afghan authorities in the run-up to this handover. >> what is particularly striking about today's event is that senior nato commanders did not show up. general allan, the american and passenger, none of them were there. it was left to a junior ranking officer to take the american position on the dais. >> at the same time, we have these reports coming now of one london-based group that the taliban are interested in negotiating and it was quickly denied. what do you read in the political side of this? >> president karz
. today in the united states and many places around the world, people stopped to mark the of the 11th anniversary of the september 11 attacks in which nearly 3000 were killed. the president led a moment of silence this morning and then traveled to the pentagon for a ceremony there. in new york, people gathered at the memorial's where twin towers once stood. more than a decade later, where does the greatest threat remained? i spoke with a senior fellow at the center for american progress. before i get to where we are 11 years on, here we are at the council of in ben ghazi in libya, a country that americans helped to liberate from colonel gaddafi, being stormed. it is an indication, is in it, of how strong muslim feelings are around the world and that they can turn against the u.s.? >> yes, and is similar to what we have seen in the -- in afghanistan over the last few years when we have seen the koran being destroyed. or other things like this pastor with inflating opinions. even when we use our military might, we do not necessarily win friends and influence people if we are not sensiti
solve every problem in the world, the united states has not and will not dictate the outcome of a democratic transitions. >> with strong feeling and a new era of democracy, it's not as if they can. the protests have made the middle east and issue only six weeks away. with accusations that president obama approach has been weak. president obama could still call upon the egyptian president and other authoritarian arab springs. the american president -- he is the first arab in a crisis. now they needed to address both and a new friend to put in it. in his speech, he defended his response to the arab uprising and looking past the elections to a nuclear installations, they warn that time is running out. >> it is not a talent that can be contained. it will threaten the elimination of israel and the stability of the global economy. it also triggers a nuclear arms race in the region. that is why a coalition of countries is holding government accountable. that is what the united states must do what we must do to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> iran also says it doesn'
accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> four years ago, i know that many americans felt that fresh excitement about the possibilities of a new president. but today, four years from the the excitement of that last election, for the first time, the majority of americans now doubt that our children will have a better future. it is not what we were promised. i wish president obama had succeeded because i want america to succeed. but his promises gave way to disappointments and division. this isn't something we have to accept. now is the moment when we can do something, and with your help, we will do something. [ applause ] now is the moment when we can stand up and say i'm an american, i make my destiny, we deserve better. my children deserve better, my family deserves better, my country deserves better. >>> question, did the republican convention improve mitt romney's presidential prospects? mortmort zuckerman? >> i think he had to have a platform on which he could appeal to the american public and i think by and large that worked. i think he was often trying to appeal
